She talks about healthy social skills, developing routines and schedules, appropriate chores for various ages, living with a sometimes messy home (and not becoming discouraged), and a host of other issues that any mom would most likely appreciate.
All in all, Ms. Haskins does a great job of giving very down-to-earth advice for homeschoolers. The tone of the book made her seem like a really competent friend, able to help keep homeschooling from being overwhelming. She makes a point of reminding homeschoolers to not compare their children, their routine, their style, or their home with anyone else’s.
This book is full of wonderful information, from how to deal with unsupportive relatives, to specific guidelines for what needs to be covered when homeschooling. She has a website for more advice at thehomeschooladvocate.com.
I highly recommend this book! Thank you to Bethany House Publishers for sending me a free copy of this book to review.
